The excitement running through your veins as you mix your colors and carefully prep your oils. The many designs and possibilities that run through your brain as you plan and believe that it will happen!
New powered Buttermilk (just recently purchased) joyfully mixed in with oils. Lye and Oils carefully blended...thinking about those colors...thinking about that hanger swirl you will try...and then it happens. You happily mixed your fragrance oil and it's working...nothing bad happening.
You reach for the first color and then decide to take out the silicone spatula out of your mix and notice...the DARN THING IS STUCK!!!
Within minutes my soap seized! I would even say within seconds. That baby worked fast! I had to dump chunks of solid soap into the mold. Tearfully thinking of my planned hanger swirl.
Here are some pics:
As you can see towards the end it had even begun to gel.
In my defense I must say that I was soaping in the low 90s..WOW. Tricky fragrance,and in case you are wondering...it's "Rapture" from Rustic Escentuals. It is a very lovely fragrance, but let me tell you...proceed with caution!
Even my husband stopped by my station and had to ask "what happened?". So sad I am.
So then I figure I would go try out my new Light Box and take pictures of some of the clay ornaments I have been playing with lately for the kids "Santa Tree".
Well...one of my ornaments is missing her legs! Apparently the kids got a hold of it and decided to play. =/
SOOOOO my husband stops by to see what pics I am taking and notices the leg-less Tinker Bell and he says...(yes, you guess it) "WHAT HAPPENED?!"
Thanks for checking out my blog!!!
